Quantitative Techniques for Decision Making free pdf This thoroughly revised and well-received book, now in its Fourth Edition, continues to give an in-depth and incisive analysis of the various mathematical techniques required for managers in their decision-making process. The book provides a clear understanding of the practical utility of mathematical modelling and techniques, such as linear programming, integer programming, goal programming, dynamic programming, inventory models, decision theory, game theory, network analysis, queuing, simulation and Markov analysis, for solving real-life problems. The book lays emphasis on the practical applications of the techniques rather than their rigorous mathematical treatment. It also discusses probability and probability distributions--essential to tackling the everyday uncertainties of life. The book is primarily intended as a textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students of management, postgraduate students of commerce, students of Master of Financial Control (MFC) course, and undergraduate students of industrial and production engineering. In addition, practising managers will also find the book immensely helpful in their day-to-day decision-making process.
